  1. "At the meeting it was revealed that the death toll on Thailand’s roads in 2016 was 22,356 - that was 2,877 up from the figure for 2015 which was 19,479. Also last month, more damning statistics issued by the Don’t Drink Drive Foundation revealed that on average 61 people are killed every day on Thailand’s roads." So the genius at the Don't Drink Drive Foundation began and ended extensive research by borrowing a calculator, dividing the total number of road deaths in 2016 by 365 days in a year. This led to even "...more damning statistics....61 people are killed every day on Thailand's roads." Both studies are exactly the same. How is that "more damning" So now we can be known as The Hub Of Road Deaths? Sent from my SM-T825Y using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  2. 7 drinks in 7 hours for 7 days is the definition of reasonable.
  3. The Nation didn't mention the urine people had to endure while in the 4 hour plus line. No accountability but dangle 4 new counters in front of us and we beg for more. The problem is as I see it manning the counters you have. If they can't do an entry in one to two minutes shut the whole thing down. No flights in or out until they get the mess cleaned up. The staggering losses will get everyone's attention. I hope the quality tourists start wearing diapers so they don't have to urinate in a corner. It would be wise to sell them on every arriving flight at all the airports.
  4. Total BS. The General has taken on all problem and issues more directives than any junta leader in history. He includes orders covering girls twerking, flooding, suppression of free speech, only ugly woman should wear bikinis, using the cash on hand for expenses instead of borrowing, thought Thai should be the world's universal language, no perp walks, ordered planes, trains, submarines and armored personnel carriers and says the operation of Thailand is his alone. The General is where the buck stops. Remember the Coup a few ago. He is large and in charge. Deal with it. The situation at DM is outrageous And not one person believes the lies but what can you do? Coverup, malfeasance, incompetence, bad attitude, etc. it is on him. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. Someone legitimately complains about something that is in the governments control and seemingly simple to fix so Steven100 asks why stay if you don't like it. Excellent assessment and solid advice from a veteran TV poster. I assume everything is perfect for you here, nothing needs to be changed and you've never had a problem with any aspect of Amazing Thailand. Good on you. What's a "whinge".
  6. I believe if we are going full Politically Correct here they should be referred to as Criminals of Color (CoC). Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  7. Not ideal by any means but it is a start. I lived on Soi 5 a decade ago. Every 3 weeks back then Soi 3/1 would be raided and most in the area taken away by the BIB. They need to hit the area hard more often to clean up the lower Sukhumvit's "Little Africa" zone they have carved out to ply their crimes.

  8. Way overdue. There drug, prostitution and various other street businesses are out on the open. Not one of these people standing on lower Sukhumvit have a legitimate reason to be there. If they are not curtailed the problem will continue to grow. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  9. I cannot believe people on TV actually fall for this. Someone must have graduated from high school the equivalent? Two totally awesome fake news stories today. Three if the submarine story is also just in good humor. I do not want to see any Thai sailors drown in a cup of water due to bad maintenance. That's no joke.
  10. I will be on a trip out of Thailand on day 93 of my latest stay. Is there still a one week grace period for the required report or should I still do it before the 90 days pass?
  11. What I find interesting is that Thai Visa scooped almost every mention of this story in the English press. Nothing in the Post this morning. This smells. The usual online news is strangely quiet regarding this story.
  12. Nice minor victory for the consumer Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
